Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

The unscripted series, which is based on the British reality series of the same name, successfully demonstrates how people can empower themselves to find work even in the worst of economic circumstances. It also shows how doing things like keeping a tidy house and volunteering can help avoid the inactivity and depression that often results from being out of work for too long.

Taylor doesn’t criticize people for being on welfare, nor does she discuss things like medical insurance and other benefits that people are forced to do without when they are out of work. But she does encourage people to stay focused on what they need to do to become financially independent. She also sends the clear message that while it may not be a person’s fault that they are laid off or have lost a job, they must take full responsibility for finding one.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
